John Calvert, 102, the venerable magician, author, and movie star, died Friday morning, September 27, 2013, in Lancaster, California. Word came from two different sources -- Walter Blaney, and Maria Ibanez. An unconfirmed rumor circulated last week about his death, but it proved to be premature. But this time the sad news was true. Walter reported receiving a telephone call from Mr. Calvert's daughter, Madrian, reporting the death. She said Mr. Calvert's long-time wife, Tammy, was at his side. More details will be added here as they become available.
